be somebody to run the u.s. government. in this particular case it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agree to some to raise for example retirement for medicare but has agreed to reduce social security benefits by enacting a different method for cost of living increases. white house claims that he has put $1.4 trillion cuts on the table. republicans don't agree all of those are cuts. it counts is savings from ending the wars if iraq and afghanistan, but the president will contend tonight that the country is much further along toward dealing with its spending program, dealing with its deficit problem than republicans will accept. we'll hear a different version of tha
cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, and energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. and that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefi benefits. that idea is even worse. [applaus [applause] >> yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms, otherwise our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't have senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while askin
. and that member this evening is the departing energy secretary steven chu. so if the worst happens prepare for president steven chu. wolf blitzer, already saying that he welcomes president chu. >> steven chu, the energy secretary, the designated hitter god forbid in case of emergency. this will be one of theirs last official acts including, of course, the defense secretary leon panetta. momentarily we'll hear paul irving, the house sergeant at arms announce that the president of the united states is coming in with those very famous words, mr. speaker, the president of the united states. then the president will walk in. you see members of the cabinet walking in including dennis mcdonough, the new white house chief of staff, at the top of the screen. he's designated as a member of the cabinet, the white house chief of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrat
was taken. look at, judy, there's a certain passivity there. there was energy in that room right now. i mean... >> woodruff: well, they're waiting. >> usually there's a milling back and forth and kind of a... >> woodruff: higher energy. people who slap each other's backs for a living. they're good at that. i agree with that. >> it looks like a painting almost. >> woodruff: i'm told the president is right outside the door. but who knows how close he is. but in just a moment, the house sergeant of arms is going to... maybe it's about to happen in a moment. he's going to announce the president. >> watch he does. he comes down three steps, three rows. >> woodruff: paul irving. house sergeant of arms. >> puts his finger on a button. see him? he did that. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. ( applause ) >> woodruff: so at nine minutes after 9:00 eastern time, president obama makes his way in. the official plan had been for him to come in a minute or two after. but i guess he has a prerogative of being a few minutes later than what we were told. >> he just can't stop himself. he jus
and is expected to discuss investment in infrastructure and clean energy, all ostensibly without increasing the nation's deficit. beginning the republican response tonight as well from marco rubio. john, a lot of discussion tonight about the tone. the dow is at a fresh five-year high but a couple of wild cards in the form of north korea, foreign policy, a standoff in california tonight, the gun debate. >> the gun debate is one that's thrust itself into the nation's attention span, and the president's agenda, and this is going to only encourage that, but really the tone everybody is looking for is his tone vis-a-vis republicans. the inaugural, he had his elbows out a little bit. he was very newly confident just coming off that re-election. people will be watching to see how aggressive and confrontational he will be with them on the deficit, on the investment proposals he's going to make tonight which are modest but, nonetheless, are there. and on immigration, which is one way republicans are coming his way. >> larry kudlow, tonight you talked about the line between being assertive and confid
will get a vigorous private sector if the government backs off and let's the dynamic energy of the private sector go forward. neil: he will be talking about not only bigger government but smarter government. government can do a lot of good. do you think government can? >> look, we don't need smarter government. we don't need more efficient government. we needless government. people in middle class and people in the lower classes they don't need more government, they need jobs. we need to create jobs. we need the economy to grow so that we can fund these government programs. look, government could be run better. everything could be run better but we don't need more government. we need more jobs. we need need more investment. with we need more prosperity. we're not on the path to that. i hope tonight he will take a different course. i'm not expecting it but i'm hopeful. >> thank you. neil: president's cabinet coming in. new addition, john kerry, replacement for hillary clinton as secretary of state. leon panetta the outgoing defense secretary. that hagel confirmation approved in committee is
's energy secretary steven chu. this person is known as the designated survivor, if you can believe it. a term of distinction. savannah guthrie, let's talk about the atmospherics in the hall, what we can see, and what will be off camera. >> we touched on it already. the atmosphere in terms of the bitterness and the divided nature of our government right now. if you talk to republicans and democrats, the view you get of the other party is just so stark. as far as the speaker and republicans are concerned, the president emboldened, confrontational, wants to obliterate the party. on the side of the white house, aides think the republican party is fractured, weak, vulnerable, unable to govern itself and unable to make deals to solve the big problem and you've alluded to it, an incredible emotional weight inside this hall tonight, because of the many, many victims of gun violence there. a coordinated campaign by one congressman to have multiple victims of gun violence sitting there in the hall. you see them with green ribbons, and issue the president has not brought up in any state of the u
outdoors. probably some significant emotional challenges. all of this pent-up energy that could have been used for good to go out and take other human lives. chris, we're going to be waking up tomorrow morning and the next day and saying how sad. number one, so sad for the people that christopher dorner is believed to have killed and injured. and number two, that he wasn't able to resolve his own problems. and if there is anything to be gained from this, anything, it's black, white, whatever color, whatever race, wherever we come from cultural wise, we have to work these situations out. but once you get a legal opinion that said my friend, we listen to the case, and that's the way it goes. we have to learn how to take the bad news with the good news in life. christopher dorner could not handle bad news. when it got too heavy for him, he chose to act out against everyone. and the epicenter of his anger and rage was the 10,000 men and women of the los angeles police department. and everybody else in society who would have stood with him. >> yeah, i think he engaged, if he did, in group guil
, clean energy, a whole host of these things. those proposals deserve a boat. that is what we want to see. the contrast of marco rubio giving a personal speech directed not at the country but very personally at the president, i think, is a huge missed opportunity for the republican party. they have to do something differently, or they will continue to lose national elections. >> whether or not you like republican policy ideas or vice versa, but contrast of the president talking and marco rubio talking about the president did not serve him well. >> at the end of the speech, again, it was almost as if it was two different speeches. rubio wants to take it big, let's come together and work on these things together. is this the same guy that was just basically blaming the president for everything, including bad weather? it just seemed very, very -- it will be seen as very off-putting to the people that live in this country and decide elections. it huge missed opportunity. >> thank you. pleasure to have you here tonight. >> thank you. >> i think rubio -- it sounds primitive as well -- to the ca
